You need to start the document with complete DOCTYPE.  That DOCTYPE you 
provided says nothing about which version of HTML or XHTML you are 
using, so the validator cannot validate it.  See the list of valid DTDs 
for more info.

http://www.w3.org/QA/2002/04/valid-dtd-list

 From those listed, I recommend you either use HTML 4.01 Strict or HTML 
4.01 Transitional.
